Hello, and a Terrific Resource to Check Out

Sunday, December 4, 2016

Hi everyone, and apologies for the radio silence. I need to keep this brief; I've been frantically busy the past 5-6 weeks, and will be for (hopefully only) another.

Long story short: my landlord, C, who is 91, unfortunately could no longer live by herself. So her family made the difficult position to place her in a nursing home. It's a very good one, fortunately, but it's still quite sad.

As you can imagine, it's quite expensive. As a result, they need to sell her house to pay for her care - which meant that I needed to move, with very little notice (as in, less than a month).

I manged to make it happen (thank you to my best friend F, who was there for me on moving day last Saturday), but it was quite stressful to pull off in just a few weeks. And it necessitated moving Thanksgiving weekend, which is typically a four-day holiday. I am exhausted, as things are quite busy at work right now. Hopefully things will calm down after this week. Fingers crossed.

In other news, I wanted to say a few words about a new TS resource that I hope might be useful to some of you. The good folks at Juno Medical, a European healthcare company, kindly asked me if I could let readers of my blog know about a guide they've created with information about GCS.

It's clear they have invested a great deal of thought and care has gone into it, so it is my pleasure to share it with you. Please take a look at the fruits of their labor here:

Thank you to Tim and all of the lovely folks at Juno Medical for putting this together, and for giving me the honor of sharing it with all of you! I hope you find it to be a valuable resource!

That will do it for this girl for now. I hope to start posting a bit more regularly, so watch this space. :c) Have a good week, everyone...

On top of the stress of moving,  I'm still coping with the fallout from our most recent election here in the States. I almost never post about politics here, and only mention it now to say that it makes me even more grateful than usual for what is my very favorite Christmas album of all time: Vince Guaraldi's A Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack. This is "Christmas Time Is Here," one of the lovely originals he composed (along with Lee Mendelson, the special's producer).


So peaceful... thank you, Vince, and thank you, Charles Schulz...

Wow! Moving is stressful at the best of times, moving at short notice in a busy period must have been a nightmare!

Hope your new place is a pleasant as your old one!

Thank you, Stace! Yes, it's been a challenge, no doubt about it. I'll write a bit more about my new environs in my next post, hopefully, but I can tell you that they suit my needs at the moment. :c)

Hope you're doing well, hon. I've been thinking of you. xoxoxo

Hugs,
Cass

Take care, Cass. As Stace says, moving is stressful. I do hope the rent has not increased significantly. I often think of that time we met in that diner, which I believe was just a few blocks from the place you are moving out of. Maybe again, someday...

Thank you, Calie. :-p I'm happy to report that my rent has gone down significantly (I'll explain in a future post), and I'm less than three minutes from where we met for lunch that day. In fact, I have a dinner date there next week with the lovely Miss J. :c)

Hope you're well, hon! Miss you!

Hugs,
Cass
